Tony D’Agostino – CEO and Founder of Inspire Care 360!

Tony has spent over 10 years as an early learning and childcare owner and operator of up to six childcare centers in Western New York.  He has also led the development of over 6900 hours of early learning curriculum, the 9 Key Development Areas.  Prior to the early learning space, Tony led practices in Human Resources with close to 20 years of experience in adult training and curriculum development. Tony led employee engagement through extensive communications solutions and group purchasing with his own companies, and MSI Services. Corporate experience with Ernst and Young, Pearson Education, Drake Beam Morin, ACS and Xerox Corporation specialized in delivering managed solutions and outsourcing solutions to clients. These experiences culminated in the development and business services of Inspire! Care 360. The vision is to provide business owners with more time to develop and ready the children, as well as significant savings for their business.

🧪Key Learning Outcomes from Tony!

  • More than 50% of early childhood educators leave their center after 4 years, and more than half of directors do the same.
  • The average typical turnover rate in childcare centers is 40%, with numbers rising after COVID.
  • Turnover costs your center more money. More turnover means more advertising, screening, hiring, onboarding and training.
  • Lack of purpose is key in employee turnover. Companies with a purposeful mission saw 49% lower attrition.
  • To create a high purpose culture, teachers need to feel connected to the success of the children and the company. They need a solid understanding of the companies mission and the reasoning behinds its goals.
  • Meaningful recognition of the important and amazing work your educators are doing is key to staff retention.
  • When hiring educators, take the time to understand them, hear their story, observe them in action. If we hire too quickly we may bring someone who is a poor fit into our center and our centers culture.
  • Build a career ladder for your teams. This will empower them and hold them accountable to their work and professional growth.
